My daughter, Mel, and niece, Mandy, are both amazing cooks.

So when either one of them calls or stops over with a new recipe that they have tried and loved, I’m always excited to test it in my own kitchen.

The other night it was Mel’s turn to entice me into making a new recipe she’d found for cinnamon-honey butter.  She said it was absolutely delicious on top of the banana bread she’d made.

She was right.

( You can find the recipe for the butter here!)

And here is my recipe for Banana Bread.
